Your Volcanic Soul:

Blasting Out to Embrace Your Authentic Self


A Journey to the Sacred Volcanos of Ecuador

March 22-29, 2023

This journey is an invitation to explore those parts of you that are longing to be seen, heard and appreciated. A journey for you to remember and be your most authentic Self.

Sometimes it is in stepping away from your daily life that true change can happen. Through ceremony, initiations and a deep connection with the beauty of nature, we will be doing the deep work of transformation.

On this sacred land you will be able to:

CLARITY FORWARD:
Recognize and release what is not serving your soul so that you can see your way forward clearly

REJUVENATE YOUR BODY: Truly relax in the embrace of Mother Earth and let your body remember your wellbeing

CONNECT TO INNATE WISDOM AT WILL:
Work with ceremonial processes to know yourself in new ways 

HAVE FUN LETTING LOVE AND CREATIVITY FLOW WITH LIKE MINDS:
Share in the spirit of community in a safe space with like-minded people

GAIN CONFIDENCE IN YOUR PATH:
See your own beauty reflected in another’s eyes

Ceremonies of Transformation

From the moment you step off of the plane, you will be in ceremony (and it actually begins the minute you say yes).

The focus of this trip is on creating opportunities for individual and collective transformation and growth so much of our time will be spent on this. There will also be opportunities for rest and integration.

Activities will include:

  • Fire and water ceremonies at sacred sites
  • Trance dance and movement
  • A traditional Temezcal (similar to sweat lodge) ceremony with optional medicine
  • A plant medicine ceremony with San Pedro at the water
  • Shamanic journeys with guided meditations
  • Excursions to nearby markets
  • Flute-making workshop and other indigenous arts classes
  • And much more

A trip of this nature includes lots of time to process and integrate your experiences. We will also leave room for the “or betters” that the Universe provides.

The Land

Using the energy of four sacred volcanos and the healing waters of lagoons and waterfalls, you will dive deeply into those spaces within you that are most in need of healing and change.

We will be in the Andes highlands of Ecuador, staying in a valley near the town of Otavalo. The surrounding beauty of nature — volcanos and waterfalls — and the power of Pachamama (Mother Earth) will assist you in your transformations.

It is also no accident that we will be in the land of the equator on the Equinox. What a powerful time to set the intention to create something new at the zero point of balance light to dark, masculine to feminine, balance within reflecting and heightening balance on the planet.

Jean Tindle is a gifted teacher, healer, ceremonialist, author and business owner. She has studied shamanic healing traditions of both North and South America for many years. Jean has done apprenticeships with Susan Lipshutz LCSW in Chicago, and in the U.S. with Peruvian maestro curandero don Oscar Miro-Quesada.

She has also spent many years in the jungles of Peru studying plant medicine with medicine men of the Shipibo and Capanahua tribes. She is a Kultrun drum carrier, from the Mapuche tradition in Chile. This is a tradition of feminine medicine carriers in service to Mother Earth.

Jean’s crystal business, Spirit Dancer Crystals grew out of her deep love of the Earth and its natural beauty and healing power. She teaches apprenticeships in the Peruvian shamanic tradition as well as workshops on crystals. Her current practice merges the South American healing tradition with both crystal and sound healing. She is certified in Sound Healing and Crystal Healing.

The greatest joy for Jean is in creating experiences for others to heal and empower themselves, using the deep exploration of these ancient traditions.
